Okay, forgive the title, but for a few months I've been having an issue where "Windows Background.wav" plays sometimes after I click buttons in various applications, mostly Chrome. I just got it to happen repeatably so I could scan things with Sysinternals ProcessMonitor, and I have that log (it's 97 MB over ~20 seconds, and I make it play a few times). 
In this instance, it played every time I clicked to expand a gif on Reddit in Chrome (http://i.imgur.com/K0wCM9V.gifv). 
Here are some screenshots of ProcMon - http://i.imgur.com/9jzCGBk.png http://i.imgur.com/DM2WPMJ.png
At some point between clicking to refresh the page and (based on a guess) closing NvTelemetryContainer.exe and nvcontainer.exe, it stopped being repeatable, for now at least. I'd guess it's something on the contact area between Chrome, Nvidia, and Windows Audio but I don't know how to properly read these calls to narrow it down. 
Any ideas for what it could be, or how I could narrow it down? If anyone wants more info from the log (or the whole log), let me know.
Thanks in advance!
